Common winter mistakes we all make

Winters have come and hot spicy samosas or pakoras are on everyone’s favorites list. Experts recommend taking extra care of your diet in winter by making it seasonal friendly is significant from a health perspective. Here are some mistakes which we usually make in winter along with tips to avoid them.

Winters have come and with it comes the desire to eat all fried, hot, sugary, and delicious food. Hot spicy samosas or pakoras are on everyone’s favorites list. We can’t stop ourselves from committing this crime. And then we try to hide the bulges in layers. Thus, weight loss in winter takes the backseat. This is why experts recommend taking extra care of your diet in winter by making it season friendly. Here are some mistakes which we usually make in winter along with tips to avoid them. 

Drinking too little water – This is perhaps the most common mistake we tend to make in winter. We don’t sweat in winter, thus the water in the body remains inside and we don’t feel thirsty. But neglecting or missing out on hydration is not good for the body. Staying hydrated even in winter is also an important factor. Our body needs water to function properly. 

Excess caffeine intake – Winter calls for hot coffee and hot tea. Sipping hot tea or coffee in this chilled weather is like a treat for everyone. And at times, we exceed our limits of taking coffee and tea a day. This often results in caffeine overdose. Excess consumption of coffee results in dehydration, gut issues, anxiety, sleep disorder and more.

Binging on junk food – This season gives us the chance to binge on processed foods and fried foods. Consuming too many calories subsequently leads to lifestyle disorders like diabetes, hypertension, obesity and many more.

Excess carb intake - According to health experts, serotonin levels drop drastically in winter. As a result, our body craves more carbohydrates, which results in several health issues in the longer run. Hence, it is suggested to keep a close check on carbohydrate intake to avoid unwanted health issues.

Consuming soup the wrong way – We just love sipping a bowl of soup in winter. However, it is good to prepare soup by adding seasonal vegetables and not just any unhealthy raw material. 

Avoiding exercises - It is important to know that any form of workout releases happy hormones and generally keeps you happy and active. Thus, it is necessary to go for a physical workout even in winter. 

Oversleeping – Sleeping too much is also bad for our health. We all love to stay in cozy, comfortable blankets and avoid exercise or workouts but we can’t get away from the fact that exercise is as much important in winter as it is in summer.
